The darkness isn’t wrong. It’s part of life, a backdrop for the stars at night, the space between what you know. Darkness has a way of reminding you of the light you’ve been given on all those other days.
You don’t need to drown out the darkness with light. You don’t need to replace negativity with positivity.
You bring the darkness to the light. Like an offering.
That means you honor what is first, before you try to change it. You meet yourself where you're at, before moving forward.
Then you can even bring light to the places and situations where there’s barely any left.
You can give someone love even though they’re not acting with love. You can light another candle.
You can handle hard things.
I can handle things.
I am learning. It’s still going badly. But I am learning. Not on a superficial level.
I am really learning the art of darkness and the working of light.
